Random Thursday. My favorite snack food.

Hallo meine Lieben,

welcome to another Random Thursday with a fantastic topic. LinEm and I are happy that you are a part of it. Thanks for reading and commenting and posting!
I hope you are having a fantastic week and are all doing great!


I love snacking. Probably a bit too much. I try to eat as healthy as I can but sometimes you just need something not so healthy when you sit on the couch, read a book or watch a movie. That is when I need my snacks....


Vegan marshmallows.


The fun part is that I did not even eat marshmallows before I went vegetarian and later vegan. I never cared about them very much but I am craving them since I went vegan. Em sent me these as a surprise (thanks again) and I love them so much. I could eat them every single day because they are just so yummy and fluffy. 
I am also a huge fan of gummi bears. Thankfully you can get lots of vegan options right now. The "mean" thing is that they usually come in huge bags which means that I can't stop eating before the bag is empty.


Salt & vinegar chips.



Swedish "Punsch rullar"

A very delicious bright green deliciousness which is made of marzipan, oatmeal, dark chocolate and rum. Pretty heavy stuff but so good. 


All kinds of nuts.

Pecans, walnuts, cashews, peanuts, almonds, macadamia...whatever. They are great when you are on the go plus really healthy so you can only win I guess.


Dark chocolate.


Honestly, who does not like chocolate? Do you know somebody who does not eat chocolate. I don't. 


Fruit bowl with yogurt, coconut flakes, raisins, walnuts and chocolate syrup.

That is my go-to dessert, I probably eat it at least 4 times a week. It is so good, yummy and kind of healthy. At least that is what I tell myself. Well, maybe when you skip the chocolate syrup. You can use all kinds of fruits but I prefer bananas or mandarin oranges. 


Pudding.

Pudding reminds me of my childhood. I am a huge fan of the pudding "skin". I know lots of people hate it but I always use huge bowls when I cook pudding because I want to have as much skin as possible. It also tastes delicious when you add some cookies when you cook the pudding. Just saying....


Marzipan.

Oh marzipan...I love you. Most marzipan is vegan anyway (almonds and sugar!) but I always check the ingredients list. Marzipan is also great for baking. And covered with chocolate.


Raisin broetchen.


You can find my recipe here. They are really easy to make and also great when you are on the go. You can also eat them with some spread like a vegan Nutalla version. That's how I prefer them. Which brings me to this....


Vegan "Nutella"


This one is my favorite. It is so good that I love to eat it with a spoon. Probably not the healthiest thing to do but definitely something that makes you happy. 


As you can see: I like to snack! Now I am curious...what is your favorite snack food? Please share with us!

  7. I love pudding skin too--how funny! I have met people who claim to not like chocolate, and I always wonder if there's something wrong with them. It's not natural.

    I really like the lime tortilla chips but I try not to buy them, because I'll open the bag and not stop eating until they're all gone! I had some pumpkin spice chips recently too that were really good.

    1. So awesome that you love pudding skin too. I have always thought that I am the only one! I think there is definitely something wrong with people who don't like chocolate! Pumpkin spice chips sound awesome! I would love to try them. But I agree, I can't stop eating chips either. Once you open the bag, it is over!

  9. I'm not a fan of marshmallows (probably because I ate WAY too many as a kid, haha) but I"m glad you're able to get them in Vegan form. Em actually mentioned she was sending them to you and I thought that was awesome of her. I've heard Kettle chips are amazing, havent tried them yet though - maybe someday soon.

    Mmm...chocolate.

    1. Haha, I guess I am a fan now because I never had them as a child. :) I was so excited when I got Em's package because I was craving them so badly. :) She really is a sweetheart!
      Chips are so good! I just can't stop eating once I open the bag!

  10. Is raisin broetchen like a cookie? It looks yummy!

    I love to snack on cashews and pistachios, and those little tiny oranges are good, too. Oh, and pretzels and hummus! Now I'm getting hungry...

    1. They are more like sweet buns. They don't have the texture of a cookie, they are softer! So delicious! You should try them, I am sure you would love them!

      Oh yes, pistachios are great too! I forgot to mention them! And pretzels! Yum! I am hungry now. :)

  11. oh, i love salt and vinegar chips too! one of my favorite snacks is onion and sour cream pringles. don't think you like the onion part though. i love raisin and almonds too

    1. The funny thing is that I like onion flavored chips. Don't know why because I really hate onions but for me they don't taste like onions at all. Haha.

  13. I know somebody who is allergic to chocolate!! Can you imagine?

    Mmmm, Kettle Chips! I would eat them every day if they weren't so expensive.

    1. Allergic to chocolate? That sounds like a nightmare!! Is the person allergic to the cocoa or something else?

      I could eat chips every day, it is a shame! :)

  14. my favorite would be doritos potato chips and maybe milk chocolates sometimes & ice cream and maybe those ice cream sandwichs, the ones with black cookies and white vanilla in between. there are more but that's allI can think of for now. I really should eat more fruits!

    hope you have a great day.

  15. I've never really liked marshmallow, but they look so cute! :p And I don't know if I'd like those chips, but I'd totally buy them just because of their packaging :p.

    Have an awesome weekend, Katrin! ;D

    1. I never really liked marshmallows either. But when I became vegan I started craving them. I guess because a vegan version is hard to find. Haha.
      Have a fantastic week, Miki!

  16. Katrin, yet again we are SO alike :) I love it!
    I haven't tried vegan marshmallows yet, but I'd love to!
    I love Kettle chips, too (and I can never stop before the bag is empty, same with gummy bears).
    Anything made of dark chocolate and/or marzipan is heaven :) Yum!
    Nuts are one of my favorite snacks, too.
    Your fruit bowl souns delicious, I love having that for breakfast especially in summer. And pudding is the greatest dessert ever - I had vanilla and chocolate pudding last night, like a whole lot :D
    And that Rapunzel spread is awesome. I eat it with a spoon, too!
    Mmmmh, and I've always lovede Rosinenbrötchen. Haven't made them myself in a while though.
    Since last night I also love chocolate covered pretzels ;)
    I hope you're having a wonderful weekend, sweet Katrin!

  17. All of them look tasty! I don't like all chocolate desserts that much....as long as it pairs with something savory or creamy!
